IPRC-YES Workshops on Ocean-Atmospheric Modeling

(YES:Yokohama Institute for Earth Science, JAMSTEC,

including the Frontier and Earth Simulator Center)


Time:  Tuesday, August 24, 2004; 10:30 am - 5:30 pm

Place: Pacific Ocean Science & Technology (POST) Building Room 723, University of Hawaii

             (the building that houses IPRC; map available at http://iprc.soest.hawaii.edu/directions.html)


The purpose of the workshops is to exchange ideas and foster collaborations. We would like to reserve enough time for general discussion. Please keep your presentation within 10 minutes and allow 5 minutes discussion. Those talks marked with asterisk are 10 minutes long including discussion. An ideal presentation focuses on general aspects of the research that illustrate the possibility of completed or planned simulations and encourage discussion on future collaborations. Scientific details may be presented only as necessary.
